    Type of muzzle brake is best

    Looking for a muzzle brake for my rifle a sako Roughtech rem 7mag 18-1 thread been looking at the ''Terminator t3'' and the ''Grizzly'' my preference is the terminator but I want to fit it myself and was wondering if they come with a lock nut so as to time it due to an old shoulder injury I am forced to put a brake on the rifle because i'm not going to stop shooting but would like a little less recoil if possible I know noise is a factor with brakes but won't affect me as my wife and I use ear protection at all times so a little help from the forum will help me decide which brake to buy in the end Cheers

    Terminator T2 would do the job very nicely. Have several T2’s on light weight magnums and really rate them.

    The new TU with self install locking nut comes in M17 & 18x1 thread will be perfect for your rifle, coated black as well

    The terminators are probably the best on the market for recoil reduction but any brake is bloody antisocial so you will be shooting on your own.

    The TU looks the same, just 1mm bigger in diameter than the TT brake in the pictures on your thread in the OZ Gun Lobby forum

    The nut will go over your 22mm muzzle

    Another vote for the Terminator. I changed to a T4 from another brand and rifle went from pushing me backwards and bruising me to a joy to shoot
    Aim small , miss small
